Aslan by ChayaA Aslan by ChayaA
I finished this a while ago, but haven't had time to upload due to massive amounts of HW for school! I'm happy witht he way it turned out. Thanks to Balaa and all her helpful fur tutorial links! She's the mastah of furriness ;)

I used many stock photos (mostly very low res so I couldn't see a darn thing!) of lions for ref's to get me started, but most of it was from me own imaginings :)

UPDATE 7/09/07: I finally had time to paint in the last little details as well as fix the contrast an lighting. It looks soooooo much better than the older version! Also, I've included a higher res version for people who wish to print copies (I won't ever sell prints of this pic even though it's an original piece. Disney/Walden Media currently own copyrights on most anything related to Narnia, and I don't want to risk infringement or be accused of stealing. Also, Aslan is CS Lewis's creation, and it wouldn't be right to use his character for my own profit), just make sure that you don't steal (ie - give the me, the artist, credit for the work) or try to make a profit off of the image in any way, or I will hunt you down..... To save a copy of the larger image click on the download button.; a new window containing the larger version of the image should appear on screen. Right click and Save As. The image should be at 300 dpi, so basically you enlarge it to any size you want without losing too much quality. Enjoy :)

Daily Deviation

Given 2006-12-08
I love big cats for their innate beauty and grace that surfaces through their overall power and strength. Aslan by *ChayaA is a great example of this. You look in the eyes of this beautiful lion and you see such a deep expression of understanding and patience. It sounds strange to think a lion has that but there it is, it's portrayed perfectly. Aslan is a testament to how a great artist poors emotions into her work to help us connect with the subject. ( Featured by Aeires )

Nicely done! Here's a fun fact;
Did you know that the word ASLAN literally means lion in Turkish? And since I am from Turkey it really sounds hilarious to call him ASLAN. But I like him! I really like how brave he is s and other stuff... So, we actually watched him in our class and everyone was looking at me since I was the only Turkish person in the class! But literally you drew him very GOOD.

From Aslan K Freeman, aka "LionOfNarnia" on various forums (including my own, 'Sport Blowpipe International')

Dude, you did a superb job with this work of art. I was searching Google Images for a better avatar & yours leapt straight out at me. As I had to make it 100x100 for the av, your sig doesn't show, but I've written a posting acknowledging your work and giving the link to your place. Hope that's enough, apart from my humble thanks.

I absolutely love how he's all wild-looking. :) You don't see that much, I guess... that idea of Aslan being "wild," nevermind that it's mentioned several times in the books; he's even described as "terrible" a few times, too.

And the colors are awesome, too! :)

I love Aslan. I've always wanted him to be real so I could play with him like Lucy and Susan did. But I will have to stick with my little imagination. And these paintings.

This is absolutely gorgeous. Lolvely.

This is amazing. As you have probably been told countless times. This is an incredibly epic piece.

There is so much soul in this picture and the expression is one of magnificence. I can definitely see this as Aslan. Truly astounding.

An obvious :+favlove: for me. I just really wanted to explain to you why I love it so much.

Congratulations on the Daily Deviation too. You definitely deserve it. :clap:
